                       Negotiation Journal:

                    On  the Process  of Dispute  Settlement


   Negotiation Journal: On the Process of Dispute Settlement is guided by an explicit
point of view. We believe that most disputes -  be they interpersonal, intergroup,
intergovernmental, or international - can be addressed  through means  other than
coercion, withdrawal, or capitulation. Disputes, we believe, challenge protagonists,
interested observers, and would-be intervenors to find new and creative ways of mov-
ing toward a settlement of differences. Moreover, quite independent of settlement, the
very process of working  toward wise  agreements requires continued  and vigorous
attention. It is the mission of Negotiation Journal to encourage the search for and
development  of better techniques for dealing with differences through the give-and-
take of negotiation.
   Although we are primarily interested in success stories, we believe that instances of
failure to reach agreement or inability to find a wise solution are equally instructive.
Such examples  can stimulate creative efforts to explain and modify negotiation strate-
gies in ways that advance the journal's mission. Effective negotiation practice, we
believe, can be both influenced and informed by the diverse experiences of the nego-
tiators themselves.
   Negotiation Journal is eclectic in three major respects. First, the journal is deliber-
ately multidisciplinary, as is the composition of its International Advisory Board. We
hope  that Negotiation Journal will be read and utilized by everyone interested in and
committed  to the practice and analysis of negotiation. Lawyers, diplomats, politicians,
public- and private-sector policymakers, marriage counselors, labor negotiators, envi-
ronmental mediators, businesspeople, scholars in such fields as political science, law,
international relations, economics, planning, social psychology, sociology, mathemat-
ics, public policy, industrial and labor relations, business administration, organizational
behavior -  these are the sorts of people for whom Negotiation Journal is intended.
   At a second level, Negotiation Journal is eclectic in the variety of articles that it seeks
to publish. We invite the participation of practitioners, theorists, researchers, advisers,
and teachers. New and better ideas for the practice of coping with conflict, we believe,
can be generated only through a free exchange of ideas and points of view. To this end,
we  will publish a variety of features: research reports, theoretical pieces, dialogues,
reports of educational innovations, integrative book reviews, case histories, accounts of
notable successes and notable misadventures, even polemics. We also encourage inter-
ested individuals to submit proposals for special issues of Negotiation Journal, to be
devoted in their entirety to the exploration and elaboration of a specific topic.
   Third, Negotiation Journal is eclectic in its approach to dealing with differences.
We  believe that effective negotiation depends on an understanding of broader issues
such  as: the circumstances in which negotiation itself is an appropriate or possible
procedure; the role in dispute settlement of various forms of third-party intervention;
the application of negotiation to arenas in which this process has not previously been
